Mark Ford's The New York Poets: an anthology, selections from the work of John Ashbery, Kenneth Koch, Frank O'Hara, and James Schuyler, provided an exhilarating introduction to the innovations of the 'New York school'. New York Poets II celebrates its continuing vitality. The painter and writer Trevor Winkfield, who has worked in New York since the 1960s, joins Mark Ford in mapping this radical space. After a general preface, each selection from the eleven poets is preceded by an introduction; the bibliography provides a guide to major publications.
From a review of The New York Poets
'An excellent introduction to one of the most enjoyable and approachable moments in new American poetry' Guardian
